Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Dead Grass

I don't know if anyone is interested, cares or already knows, but on a muse I checked the Archive for one of my favorite old local bands, The Grass is Dead, and was pleased to find some of their shows.
They used to play local gigs and festivals here in South Florida some years ago, and as the name implies, they did Dead covers bluegrass style. They were very good. All you BEW fans will dig their version.

Yeah, than look up Yonder Mountain String Band, as well. They are the Grateful Dead of bluegrass; long jams and sandwich songs. They do some Dead and Jerry covers, as well as Zappa, Pink Floyd, Peter Tosh, Hartford,... you get the idea.
Great origonals, too.

Then you will truly love Railroad Earth. Though not technically bluegrass, nor "jam-grass", they were once described as sounding like American Beauty/Workingman's era Grateful Dead if the Dead had played "bluegrass instruments". IMHO RRE is the "keeper of the flame" for Grateful Dead style vibe in currently touring bands.

Andf you should search out Grateful Grass (Keller Williams, Keith Moseley & Jeff Austin)04/08/06 The Fillmore Auditorum, Denver, CO
